in reply to Hilighting Newest Nodes

Well, it appears not everybody was happy with the change wrought by Hilighting Newest Nodes (implemented). While I found it only slightly surprising, I believe there's a larger issue which ought to be addressed.

Namely – that we should probably be making an effort towards consistency in how alternating rows are tagged in all sections of the site. Now NN does it one way, CB/Inbox does it a similar way, and various nodelets do it other ways. Personally, I think the odd-row/even-row tag scheme is the most generic. (At least as long we're content to only consider the two-row alternating case.)

In any case, if a style tag like highlight is going to be used in some section of the site where it previously wasn't, then probably it shouldn't have a default value supplied by the site.

    One thing that I think should happen on site is that we should do a CSS/markup cleanup in a big batch. Break stuff once on a grand scale, but introduce a cleanup at the same time. A _lot_ of the css support here is gratuitous, and I say that as the person 90% responsible. A lot of the stuff here should be done via relative selectors instead of through the gazillion class names we have. One place in particular i intend to do this is the RAT. A ridiculous chunk of that page is unnecessary span tags.

    Anyway, I think its something thats worth thinking about more. It would be nice to see some analysis and design done on this subject so that the pmdevils have something to work toward.

      There is also petruchios secret world...
      I looked around, and I don't know why,
      but I assure you that never, never before,
      did this land, this river, this jungle,
      the very arch of this blazing sky,
      appear to me so hopeless and so dark,
      so impenetrable to human thought,
      so pitiless to human weakness.
